Summer is Here! Let’s celebrate by living our best lives poolside in a handmade caftan! The Charlie Caftan by Closet Case Files is THE most luxe, boho fabulous summer dress you can quite possibly make in order to be the most glamorous this Summer. Most importantly, IT HAS POCKETS GUYS!
In this weekend intensive workshop we will cut and sew the Charlie Caftan by Closet Case Files. The caftan has 3 different views, you get to choose which one! There is time allowed in this class for cutting your pattern day of, but if you feel confident you’re welcome to cut your fabric at home.
Because of the time restraints, there will be little fitting changes the instructor will be able to make to your caftan, so if you have any questions about fit please contact us prior to the start of class. This is an all day class so we will break for lunch for an hour, please feel free bring lunch or pop out for something!
